Flora & Fauna for the library
Print · · Subscribe · 0 Loves ·
The lands of Relic Lore constantly expand as more wolves explore the territories and discover new plant and animal life. If your character comes across something new, or there is simply a plant or animal that you feel belong in the realm, you can post here and relevant entries will be added to the Library.

Remember that RoW takes place in northern Canada, and such the suggested Flora and Fauna must be fitting of the setting. Before submitting, take a look at the articles to make sure your suggestion isn't already listed, and get an idea of the information we need. FLORAE FAUNAS

Finally, it would be greatly appreciated if you could code the information for us, that way it will be nice and quick for us to add. Below are the separate codes, simply fill out the BOLDED sections with the relevant info. (It will look a bit odd when you post it here, but once it's copy pasted into the article it will be just right)
- However if you don't want to mess around with code, we'd still love your contribution, just post the information and we'll do the coding.

<p>Water Hemlock is arguably the most toxic plant within Relic Lore. It has neurotoxic effects that can be seen as early as fifteen minutes after ingestion. The effects are so rapid that often, there is no saving affected individuals. Depending on dosage, signs can range from nervousness, frothing at the mouth, muscle twitching, and dilated pupils to tremors, intense abdominal pain, seizures, and death upon cardiovascular collapse. Even the roots of this plant are deadly and have been known to decimate populations of starving deer in the harsher months when the plant is dormant. Despite its toxic effects, the plant itself sports beautiful inverted umbrella-shaped white flowers that bloom from July to August. </p>

<p>Bloodroot is a toxic plant which germinates in early spring and blooms in the summer. Its leaves are best harvested in the autumn, but it can be difficult to locate as the leaves turn black and wilt, tending to blend in with other dying plants. The uses for this plant are varied. Topically, it has been shown to help rid the skin of warts and infection. However, it can cause disfiguring results. If ingested, this plant will cause immediate vomiting followed by loss of consciousness, especially in high doses. A skilled healer can find many uses for this plant, and while not well known, it is worth its weight in gold.</p>

<p><b>Cures/Relieves:</b> Cures warts, skin infections (but very scarring), can cause emesis.</p>

<p>The Nettle plant is unmistakeable in its effect and aptly named. Upon contact with skin, it can leave a stinging pain that can last for weeks. Often, the affected area will become erythematous and be joined by pruritis, resulting in a frustrating balance between pain and itch. The stinging hairs cover both stem and leaves, though the white-green flowers do not tend to contain the easily fractured hairs. While it is rare for wolves to be bothered by this plant due to their long fur, areas such as paw pads and the noses of curious puppies are prone to its bite.</p>

<p>This showy iris is readily identified by its purple petals that is found most often in wetlands and marshes. It has thick roots known as rhizosomes which, if ingested, can cause extreme abdominal cramping, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and fever. Upon contact, it can cause rashes upon contact with seeds, root beds, and cell sap.</p>

<p>This flowering plant can only survive in the southwestern aspects of Relic Lore. Deaths have been reported from wolves that may chew on fallen sticks following convulsions. Signs initially start as ataxia and progress to seizures/death. Though it can be deadly, the large shrub produces beautiful yellow flowers accounting for its name from May-June.</p>

<p>This invasive weed is striking in appearance with red-purple blooms that appear to be barbed with nasty looking spiky leaves that are also waxy to the touch. Thistles are widely spread and promiscuous which makes them very successful as an invasive species. </p>

<p>This flowering plant - also known as skunk cabbage - has distinctive stinky odor it emits upon blooming, though the smell is evident even after the flowers have dried up. With its short-stalked thick leaves and equally wide, yellow flowers, the swamp lantern is easily picked out in swamps and wet woods. This plant may be consumed in certain cases, but can result in death if ingested in large quantities. The leaves have a peppery taste.</p>
